For more than 50 years, IES Abroad has built a legacy partnering with Historically Black Colleges & Universities (HBCUs) and Hispanic-Serving Institutions (HSIs). As part of our Initiative to Diversify Education Abroad, we continue to create programs and initiatives to help increase access to study abroad.

For our 2017-18 programs, we were excited to break our personal annual record, and help 989 students through the Visa ACCeSS Program – which is 92 more students than the previous year!
